Facebook group dedicated to bringing cooler temperatures, rain for Oklahoma

NORMAN — Leslie Draper is no stranger to the benefits of meditation and she has never shied away from listening to the sage advice of angels.

Draper, who has been an ordained minister since 2007, said that everyone has angels that are involved in their daily lives. She knows this, she said, because she can see them and converse with them.

Like many, Draper was devastated by the wildfires that plagued the area last week. She knew this state needed rain. This state needed cooler temperatures. And, the Sooner state needed it fast. She wanted to help, but wasn’t sure how. That is until she started meditating.

“The night I started the group, I was meditating and I was given a clear picture of why we are experiencing this current weather pattern, what we are supposed to be learning from it, and most importantly, how to release it,” Draper said. “I am a firm believer in the laws of the universe, including the law of attraction and the power of creation and gratitude. I used my knowledge and experience of those universal laws, along with what I had been shown by my angels in the meditation to create a ‘movement.’”

This “movement,” Draper said, is a Facebook group she created called Prayers and Gratitude for Cooler Temperatures and Rain in Oklahoma.

“This project literally went from inception to a group that people could join on Facebook within 20 minutes. When one feels the divine flow of inspired energy, you do not wait to take action. You act immediately and trust the information and insight you are receiving is accurate and helpful. And that’s exactly how this movement went from an idea to a group working in cooperation,” Draper said.

Since the start of the Facebook group, Draper said she has seen a tremendous response.
